folk @ canowindra … 30th june

This Sunday, June 30, at 4-6:15pm, we will be gathering at taste Canowindra for another great afternoon of live music & poetry from the region.  Last month’s concert featuring Blue the Shearer, among others, was a very entertaining time together.  This month we are very pleased to be welcoming Steve Bevis as our feature act. For over twenty years Steve has been writing songs that draw on folk, blues, world music and singer/songwriter traditions.  From the personal to the political, Steve has compiled a body of songs that are raw, honest and heartfelt. He also has a deep interest in songs of freedom, justice and hope, and has collected songs from around the world that give voice to the aspiration for a better life and a better world.

Steve also works in overseas aid and development, and alongside Indigenous communities, documenting stories of hope and acting as an advocate for social justice.  An accomplished guitarist, a passionate performer and an engaging story teller, Steve has traveled far and wide sharing music and leading communities in song at festivals, rallies, conferences, bars, churches, schools and even in the odd lounge room.  He currently resides in Newcastle, NSW with his wife, daughter, dog and five chooks.

The variety of music and poetry that we are enjoying at the folk club has been wonderful, with performers of all ages and a range of styles.  Open mic acts are always welcome, please contact Nerida Cuddy before the day if you are interested (nerida@cornerstone.edu.au).  Entry is free, with a donation box for the feature act – and yummy food & drink available at the venue.
